In the era when Abrasive Bastard=Diplomat and Denny Hastert=Political Genius (hold on, I just wet myself)...
Republicans want to make out Tom DeLay's image as if his face is painted over the head of Baby Jesus.
Come now. Here's a man who takes great pride in the handle, "The Hammer," and made himself by calling comparing the EPA to the Gestapo, and federal agents "jack-booted thugs."
Tom DeLay is a sonofabitch no matter how you shave off bits of the little bastard, and whatever he gets from the indictment handed down (not by Ronnie Earle but) by a Texas Grand Jury, he deserves it.
Why does Denny Hastert ally himself with people like Tom DeLay?
